*Distribution of Intelligence Graph *How many gifted are there? Pie Graph *Target Group for Differentiation *Identifying the Gifted Child
The orange section is where most children will score (this is the average range). Gifted children fall within the yellow right hand section and those with disabilities will fall within the yellow left hand section of the graph.
